The meaning of life: a selection of sites
Missionary Department of the Odessa Diocese
When the French writer Francois Mauriat was asked - what he sees the hope of breaking the deadlock (which turned out to be humanity), he said: “The only bright spot in the future of humanity is the awakening of faith in the modern Russian intelligentsia” Such an unexpected answer is of exceptional importance: a European and a Catholic place their hopes not on Western civilization, but on faith in the crucified Orthodox people.

The peculiarity of the Orthodox understanding of the meaning of life lies in God. Only in Him is only possible the blessing of being of all that exists, the full-fledged comprehension of truth and the knowledge of the created world. Real (earthly) life is not a self-sufficient value, but a necessary condition for achieving perfection. The essence of the Christian faith can be expressed in two words: "Christ is Risen!". This writes Professor Alexei Osipov.http: //www.odinblago.ru/osnovnoe_bogoslovie/osipov ...
Why is life given? What is its meaning? The Greek philosophers, Chinese thinkers, and modern psychologists thought about these questions - each person. Many have received God's Revelation through St. Reverend Seraphim of Sarov. His practical advice, set forth in an obscure manuscript, is one of the most precious spiritual orthodox pearls available to all Christians in this sinful earth.http://idrp.ru/htm/fair/smisl-gizni.htm
Every person sooner or later faces the question: what is the meaning of my life? Do I exist only in a certain period of time, and after that I go into non-existence? Is the purpose of my existence reduced only to enjoyment? Science tries to answer these questions with the help of maximum knowledge of the world. Philosophy is through rational comprehension of truth. And only religion speaks of union with God.http: //pobeda.ru/tema-1-pravoslavnyiy-vzglyad-na-s ...
Christianity is Revelation that descended from heaven. God in His love tells man about Himself, reveals the secrets of the universe and the existence of another world, where truth and love reign, where there is no evil and injustice, where beautiful angels and souls of the righteous live in bliss and glorify their Creator.Only He can give a true understanding of the meaning of life, using His Word and the works of the holy fathers of the Church.http: //www.pravoslavnaya-biblioteka.ru/smisl-jizni ...
Meaning of life
The meaning of life in Orthodoxy coincides with the goal of Christianity - the personal achievement of the Kingdom of God. According to the Bible, man consists of body, soul, and also spirit. And the last element, its constituent, just contains the divine nature. In order to reveal it in oneself, one must make a choice between the sensual and the spiritual, to love the Lord above all. This is the value of religion - the salvation of everyone.http: //smysl-zhizni.com/smyisl-zhizni-v-pravoslavi ...
Athos elders say that the first step, which the newborn infant is still crawling about, is a step towards the grave. And in this there is no gloom, fear, sadness. On the contrary - joy, because it kills death. It really is not! There is only a new birth. And every evening, when I go to bed, I repeat the words of the prayer: “Is it possible, Lord, I’ll have this coffin?” Archpriest Boris (Stark) shared his thoughts with him.http: //ekklezia.ru/blogi/2430-protoierey-boris-sta ...
Man has thought about the meaning and purpose of life since antiquity. The Greeks had a myth about Sisyphus, the king of Ether (Corinth).In punishment for cunning, he in the underground kingdom had to always roll in a huge stone on the mountain. But he barely reached the top, as an invisible force directed him down and the same aimless work began again. This absurdity in our reality reflects this site.http://www.pravoslavie.ru/6624.html
If life is only the accumulation of things, if the thought is immersed in trade catalogs and television gossip, then I myself am just one day as the magazine “Goods and Prices”. Is a person just a “dead man on vacation,” after which the world will not even notice the disappearance of another consumer, customer and TV viewer? Protodeacon Andrei Kuraev argues this on the Pravmir.ru website.http://www.pravmir.ru/smysl-zhizni
Orthodoxy and the world
From the point of view of the science of the soul, the doctor of psychological sciences answers the meaning of life. He talks about death, about its role in a person’s life, about how it is experienced and interpreted by a person at different age stages. The author believes that the meaning of life cannot be understood as something separate, existing in itself. It must be considered in relation to something greater. It is death that helps to comprehend life.http://www.pravmir.ru/smert-i-smysl-zhizni/
